2011 Eatonville Fourth of July Parade

The snow is starting to melt away and summer is starting to make an appearance! Once again we will be walking in the Eatonville Parade and would love to have all of our wonderful volunteers walk with us waving and spreading goodwill.

Each year we ask staff and volunteers to join in and represent Mount Rainier NP in the Eatonville 4th of July parade. Dave U. has been there almost every year walking, waving, and shaking hands.

This year he gets to ride. We want to honor Dave at this year's parade. So he (and hopefully Barbara) will have the seat(s) of honor. We need others to walk along and show our thanks for his service here and support for his move to Grand Canyon.

The parade starts at Noon and usually takes less than an hour. We meet on Penn Ave. a block up from the high school between 11:30 and 11:45. You can just show up on the 4th or email Jim Ross ( and let him know that you will be coming.

If you work in uniform please wear it. If not, dress for the occasion (patriotic).
